I don't have much to show this week. I had some secret stitching to do (not model stitching), which took most of the week. And then I just knitted, adding some more rows to my Wearwithall Stole. Not enough to show, so I won't. Boring post, huh?
But I did receive a wonderful gift from a dear friend. Out of the blue, because she knew how desperate I was to take this class with Ellen Chester, but have never had the chance, she gifted me with her class kit for that wished for class!
It's the Needleworker's Sampler Huswif. It even has my friend's needlebook piece that she started in class! She also gifted me a couple of Quiltmania magazines that I didn't have. I was bowled over by my friend's generosity! Thank you so much, dear friend! I know I already said it, but I just had to say it again! I'm going to start this asap!
I'm still hoping Ellen Chester comes to my area to teach sometime. The one time she was teaching somewhat close to me, DS was having surgery so I couldn't go.
My friend also seemed to know just what to get for Mia.
See that green thing? It's a little toy bird that makes a tweety sound and has catnip in it and feathers on it. Mia loves it!
The girl child came home for a short visit this weekend, which was nice. She got to visit with her friends in the neighborhood as well.
Mia and the boy child:
Yes, the boy child is using Mia for a pillow. (Don't worry, he wasn't really. Mia wouldn't have allowed it!)
Mia was back to one of her usual perches this week.
You'd think she would be too hot with this weather. But she still loves the sun. And yes, she has her two little paws on the window.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a good week.
